JJJ is super excited to announced that the movie is being turned into an animated series on Disney XD!
“The movie and franchise quickly became a worldwide phenomenon. We’re looking forward to working with the great team at Marvel Television to deliver an engaging animated series that fans can enjoy each week,” said Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD.
Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, added, “This is a very exciting time for the Marvel Animation Studio as we get to explore the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe by developing the first-ever ‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy’ animated series. After starring in the biggest movie of 2014, everyone wants more of Star-Lord and his crew – now they’ll get it.”
Produced by Marvel Television, the series stars Peter Quill as Star-Lord, the brash adventurer who, to save the universe from its greatest threats, joins forces with a quartet of disparate misfits – fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, a tree-like humanoid named Groot, the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora and the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer. The series will premiere in 2015 on the Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD.
Guardians of the Galaxy takes place in the far reaches of space, and follows an American pilot named Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) who finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. Make sure to check it out in theaters on August 1!
